Getting into the habit of a good skincare regime is a huge part of looking after your skin on the outside, while make-up can also provide the illusion of glowing skin. However, there are also steps you can take to help activate glowing skin from within.
From drinking enough water to eating the right foods and introducing collagen supplements into your routine, here’s what you can do to start taking care of your skin from the inside out.
Why Water is Key to Glowing Skin
Drinking enough water can help to stop your whole body from becoming dehydrated, including your skin.
Water plays an essential role in helping to keep skin plump, smooth and functioning properly. Drinking plenty of water can mean your skin is less likely to dry out and crack, and it can also help to improve your skin’s elasticity.
Foods that Can Support Healthy Skin
Eating foods known for their high water content can therefore contribute to hydrating your skin too; think watermelon, cucumber, tomatoes and spinach.
Foods such as avocados, sunflower seeds and fatty fish can also be good for your skin, thanks to their healthy fat content.
Meanwhile, vitamin C can contribute to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin. Vitamin C can be found in citrus fruits, capsicum, broccoli, strawberries and blackcurrants, as well as the mykind Organics Vitamin C Spray, which comes in a tasty orange-tangerine flavour.
